Lego Competition 2022

General News

Children and young people are invited to participate in dlr Libraries Lego Competition 2022, a perfect project to work on this Summer and be in with a chance to win some prizes!

We have four age categories as well as the 'Crowd Favourite' choice. Team builds are also accepted, so feel free to buddy up with a sibling, family member or friend to build and to enter!

Each year we are bowled over by the Lego builds we receive in dlr LexIcon, with close to 90 builds submitted each year in 2017, 2018 and 2019, each showing creativity and ingenious building skills and filling our library with a splash of glorious colour! Due to Covid restrictions we had fewer builds submitted in 2020 and 2021, we hope to see lots of builds and more riotous colour again in September 2022.

Entrants are asked to use their imagination and build a piece based on this year’s theme:

‘Our planet: re-imagined’

If you could imagine a better world, what would it look like?

Feel free to let your imagination go everywhere and anywhere.

Builds need to arrive to dlr LexIcon between 3pm and 7pm on Wed 21st September.

We will contact prize-winners by afternoon on Thursday 22nd September and present prizes on Saturday 24th September. Builds will need to be collected before 5pm on Saturday 24th September. The builds will be on display for Culture Night on Friday 23rd September and available for the public to view in dlr LexIcon.

We are delighted that Bricks4Kids South Dublin, will partner with us once again to sponsor some wonderful prizes as well as to judge the Lego builds we receive.

Entry form is available as attachment to this news item and available in printed format in all dlr Libraries. If anyone doesn’t have Lego bricks available, please contact us at We have a limited selection of Lego stock available.

Happy Lego Building!
